When i run the skype app for windows 8 i can see my Skype friends and Windows Live Friends, but not my Facebook Friends. This would be fine if the people hub showed my Skype Friends, but that only shows my Windows Live Friends and Facebook friends. The skype desktop app would show all three. If i even run the Skype desktop app on my windows 8 it still shows all three even though the skype win 8 app will not.
Any help or knowledge of a fix coming soon would be great.

Skype’s Facebook features are not available in the Modern version of Skype.
is there any talk about it including facebook. I merged my windows live and skype when i was using windows 7 and it was nice that all 3 were in the same place, now I am back to using multiple apps. Im not a fan of this step back in functionality.
Please is there a date anything about when this will be included. You already have the code to make it possible seeing how Skype desktop supports it and Windows Live messenger as well.
For facebook you can use messaging app.
You can repost to Idea garage.

I like this idea of using the messenger, but microsoft just sent me an email saying they are shutting down the messenger. What will I use now? The messenger never even worked well with facebook, but they told us to use skype on windows 8. I only use it for facebook contacts and a few other friends from windows live...
